|Snow covered mountains in the distance|
|Great Balls of Lava!|
Actually they are called snowballs of lava. Pieces would
break off the main flow and tumble downhill similar to a snowball
These are about 15' in diameter!
|Looking over East Lake, still threatening rain|
|Our climb into the obsidian flow|
|Pretty amazing scenery|
|We even found a waterfall|
|Having a great time!|
|The path through the flow|
|The native americans would come up to 200 miles once a year|
to harvest obsidian for their tools, knives, arrowheads, etc
|Approaching the rim, more and more snow|
|Damaged trees from the snow|
|Just to give you an idea of how much snow!|
We drove around half the lake taking pictures, got in a short half mile hike, had a picnic lunch overlooking the lake. Truly beautiful!
|The views are awesome|
|Some big trees out here!|
|Magnificent color of the water|

We are now in process of rejoining our original itinerary in Colorado, but we had a few stops to make along the way. We celebrated Jan's birthday with scallops for dinner, per her request. Yummy, by the way.
Then we stopped in Boise to visit Jan's cousin Kris, and Sandy and see their new house.
|After a great dinner out|
We even got to wash our filthy motorhome and truck, I think we finally have all the ATF off:-) Ran a few errands in the big city, then off to Picabo, ID to try to fish the famous Silver Creek. I'll leave you with our first sunset in Picabo reflecting off our window.
|More to come....|
